On Friday the 25th, 2011, I will be taking part in the Save Service District Day at James Lankford’s office in downtown Oklahoma City, at the corner of 10th and Broadway Avenue (just north of Automobile Alley, north of downtown OKC). The event will take place from about noon to 1pm. Please fee free to join me! Send me a message for more details.

Together, You and I can help SAVE so much that is important to our nation. I hope to see you there!

Yours in Service!
